Drew Brees

Former Chargers Drew Brees and Darren Sproles, along with other National Football stars, are headed to MCAS Miramar on Tuesday.

Drew Brees was the Chargers' quarterback from 2001 until 2005.

Darren Spoles played running back for the Chargers from 2005-2010.

The Marines, sailors, and families of Miramar can practice pass-and-throw drills with the NFL pros. Less sporty types can still get their photo taken with the players, and get some autographs, too.

The NFL is holding the free event for Marines, Sailors, and their families as a way of saying thanks.

The NFL event takes place Tuesday, July 15 from 10 a.m. – 12:50 p.m. For more information, click here.
